Mochipet - Rawr-Means-I-Love-You_web

Earlier this year, I was playing a show in New Orleans for Mardi Gras and someone decided to steal my laptop out of my backpack at the venue. I was of course in disarray, well because someone jacked my laptop! but more importantly, I was in the middle of tour and had to complete many more shows before I was able to head home. With help from my friend Eric, we spent hours to navigate our way through the Mardi Gras madness to go to the Apple Store, many miles away, so I could buy a new laptop that was not what I needed, but could work, charged it on my credit card with money I didn’ t have at the time, so I could return it after tour was over. Shortly after I posted about my stolen laptop on my social media, I was sure it was gone but just in-case there was any chance it might have been seen; I know it was a long shot. But more importantly, I was worried the thief could go on stealing more laptops from other artists without anyone being aware of the situation. Not expecting much, I posted some tracks to start a laptop fund and help spread awareness about the situation. To my surprise, donations started coming in at a substantial rate. Not only did my fans donate to my fund but they also helped spread awareness of the situation! I was able to raise enough to get a new laptop when I got off tour. I am very grateful for this, not only because I was able to replace the laptop that was stolen from me, but because people actually took time out and resources to help me in my time of need. To this I will always be grateful, and I promised that once my next album was finished I would send it to them free of charge before it is released to the public! =)

I have learned a lot about insurance and tracking systems for keeping your laptop going to the wrong hands when your on tour. If you would like more info on this you can read my post here.

Happy Holidays! I hope you enjoy the album!

Our friend Dylan Just sent us this documentary of Blek Le Rat Stencil Pioneer in France and there was some Daly City Stencils spotted around (21:55 – 21:59). We are proud to be represented here <3

British graffiti artist Banksy has acknowledged Blek’s influence stating “every time I think I’ve painted something slightly original, I find out that Blek Le Rat has done it as well, only twenty years earlier.”[7] The two have expressed mutual desire for collaboration; in 2011, Blek was seen adding to a mural begun the previous year by Banksy in the Mission District, San Francisco.[8]

Threesomes With Moog and Mochipet

A few weeks ago I had a really good Threesome in my Studio with my Moog Little Phatty, Access Virus, and Roland TR-707. I made a post on my Facebook about it and everyone showed an immediate interest in the sounds I was making, so I had an idea! Why not post up these sounds for everyone in the world to share? So here it is, I finally had some time to edit these sounds and upload them for your own audio pleasure! Feel free to use these in your own production and creative adventures, I hope you have fun with them.

About these sounds. They were recorded straight to computer via my RME ADI-8 DS and then normalized and dithered down to 44k 16bit. When there is a pitch applicable, the pitch is in C. The Moog Little Phatty was processed with Moogerfooger MURF and Ring Modulator Pedals as well as the CP-251.

So here you go! The first set of sounds (MoneyShot) with my Moog. If you guys like these I will upload more for you. Feedback is always appreciated. So if you like these please send me a message on my Facebook, Twitter, or Soundcloud. Happy Holidays!
